I just sent a question. In case it was not received - a hummingbird flew into our window last week. It can't fly. The one wing is at an upward angle. Don't know if it is broken or
Dislocated. Would love to get it back outside but it would not survive. Help

It's best chance for survival will to get to a local or regional wildlife rehab facility, or an individual rehaber with bird experience.Tonight put the hummer in a small shoe box with holes in the lid, use lots of shredded paper towel for padding, put in a quite dim area of the house. Keep the resident dogs & cats away.For calories & fluids use an eye dropper to give sugar water. Hummingbirds have a Very High calorie need!! Short term the sugar water you make for the feeders is ok. Long term, protein needs have to be meet.Unfortunately the local rehab facility may not be open till Monday.Call your area AEC, Animal a Emergency Clinics, Animal Shelters, Animal Control, as well as doing online searching.Will monitor for your questions.
